    Simply awesome. Staff could not be friendlier or more knowledgeable. Everything we had was great and we ordered additional menu items to go.

    Great atmosphere and a very nice staff. I ordered the Tuna Melt with a side of mashed potatoes (mix of sweet potato and another which I don't recall). I do, however, recall the price which was $15.00 for my food and a bottled water (lady went to the back and filled a bottle)! A bit pricey but it was delicious.

    I have only dined at four 'dedicated gluten free' restaurants and all of them were wonderful, but, Fresh First stands out amongst all if them and most regular restaurants as well. The quality of their gluten free food and extensive selection is OUTSTANDING! It's nice to walk into and establishment having the ability to order anything! Their food is local and organic, their desserts are fabulous and the ownership is extremely pleasant. 5 stars and a must visit while in Southern Florida. We can only hope other restaurants follow suit across the country!

    The proficiency and extensive education with which this team operates is effortlessly demonstrated in their product which is a healthy, safe, and enjoyable dining experience. While Fresh First is fully equipped to accommodate the gluten savvy diner, it's menu and staff cater to anyone simply wanting a quality healthful meal or snack. Celiac, gluten-sensitive/intolerant or just hungry, this place is ready to meet your needs before they go a bit further and fulfill your dietary wishes. This is not only for the gluten conscious diner, although we can get lost in the freedom of choices, within these walls you will find the most deliciously unique cookies! Nowhere else will you find a GF baker who uses their own handmade flour in a customized blend! Want "cruise ship quality cuisine" in a soup, salad, and sandwich place? Walk in to Fresh First and let them show you what they can do. Thank you Fresh First for a safe meal that sacrificed nothing because it was GF. BRAVO!

    Wonderful gluten free establishment! My wife (a Celiac) was on cloud nine!...We had never before been to a dedicated GF restaurant where she could have ANYTHING on the menu & not worry about cross-contamination. The food was great & the staff was very nice & knowledgeable (GF trained). The owner & her daughter (who makes their own GF flour) talked with us & truly cared about our visit. My wife & I had not had such wonderful baked desserts since she had to go gluten free 4 years ago. I would go back just for the chocolate chip cookie! A must visit "heaven" for anyone who is a celiac, or just wants to be gluten free. We hope there will be more establishments like this & locations to come in the future.

    Great food, but the service if you show up within 25 minutes of closing is pretty bad... everything is closed down, almost nothing available, and no one is helpful. this is at 445 in the afternoon... but still.

    Very celiac friendly and nice atmosphere. We had smoothies, BLTs with waffles and cheese panini, all very tasty.
